A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be a whole site or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
